February 22, 2019, Marysville, CA – Following a public hearing that was held during a special night meeting, the Yuba-Sutter Transit Board of Directors adopted a new Sacramento Commuter and Midday Express service plan last night that will become effective on Tuesday, July 1, 2019. The new service plan features the addition of one new morning and one new afternoon Highway 70 schedules and the elimination of one afternoon Highway 99 schedule. In addition to a number of minor adjustments to account for the above additions and deletions, most of the Sacramento Commuter schedules will experience minor adjustments to reflect current travel times between Marysville/Yuba City and downtown Sacramento as well as within the downtown area.
In addition to approving the new Sacramento service plan, the Board also authorized in a separate action the funding of these improvements with Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP) revenue from the State of California greenhouse gas reduction (Cap & Trade) program. As a result, implementation of the related service changes is being delayed until July 1st when these funds become available for expenditure.
A copy of the adopted Sacramento service plan is avaialbe at the link below, but new Sacramento service brochures to reflect the July 1st changes will not be available until early June. Contact Yuba-Sutter Transit at (redacted) or at (530) 634-6880 for more information.
